By far one of the most talented singers currently, he is one of the few people who has a vocal range of 5 octaves and can switch from screaming to singling like that. he also is the best live performer I have ever heard. he should be in the top ten.

This guy to one of the best ever! He's right up there with Robert Plant! I'm shocked I couldn't even find his name... Disgraceful!

247 Liam Gallagher Liam Gallagher William John Paul "Liam" Gallagher is an English musician, singer, and songwriter. He rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady Eye.

How is Zak Efron higher on this list than Liam Gallagher? He was the voice of the 90's with Oasis and his Beady Eye tunes are epic as well... Ever heard of Wonderwall, Supersonic, Champagne Supernova? Those were just the tip of the iceberg- there is a mountain of Liam-sung B-sides, album songs and singles that blow any other band or singer out of the window. How can someone who's band has scored 8 UK number one singles and 8 number one albums be at #598? He's been voted the best frontman of all time in several polls, and his band Oasis had sold over 70 million records worldwide by the time they split up in 2009. This list is a joke.

Why is he all the way down here crappier singers made it at the top of the list this is bull crap. Liam deserves to be at at least 20 or 30

Are we already insane? To not putting the very charismatic, brave, bad attitude but has a very influential voice, have you ever listen wonder wall in live in action? You better ask to God to have your time back..
silly we don't put liam neither noel here, what

Maybe he has not the best singing technic that's for sure,
but music is not about technic and his voice is just unbelieveable unique

249 Sebastian Bach Sebastian Bach Sebastian Philip Bierk, known professionally as Sebastian Bach, is a Canadian heavy metal singer who achieved mainstream success as frontman of Skid Row from 1987-96. Since his departure from Skid Row, he has had many television roles, acted in Broadway plays, and leads a solo career.

I honestly have no idea why he's 261. His range is UNBELIEVABLE, and I think he's a far better singer than Axl Rose. I mean his screams are enough to give goosebumps (listen to Angel Down) but have you listened to Quicksand Jesus his voice is GORGEOUS. He is the true God of metal and hard rock singing and if all of you are so deaf at least put him in the top 100. I mean 261 you've got to be kidding me! He's #1 in my book, tied with Freddie Mercury.

He is the father of hard rock/metal singing. I mean his high pitched screams that no one in their right mind would even try to recreate are just kick ass! His vocal range is like non I've ever heard in my life.
In my opinion he's #1.
Bach Rules!

For me he has is the best vocalist of all time, I listen music lot and whenever it comes to vocal then sebastian bach comes to my mind.
I love MEGADETH and PORCUPINE TREE

300! good,has good voice but still on 300 - zxm

In my opinion he is the best singer. His voice, style and poems are perfect! The lyrics of the Rammstein songs which he writes are wonderful.

Seriously... Till So low? People got no class! RAMMSTEIN FOR EVER!

I can't believe nobody voted for till he has vocals of a beast

Front man of rammstein emits raw energy, best singer ever.

251 Peggy Lee Peggy Lee Peggy Lee was an American jazz and popular music singer, songwriter, composer and actress, in a career spanning six decades.

One of the most nominated singers in the Grammy awards. Peggy's phrasing, styling, and nuanced way with a lyric were influential for many female singers who came later --- singers like Bette Midler and Maria Muldaur have done tribute albums. Miss Peggy Lee was a musical perfectionist - she could be cool and jazzy one moment and be giving you "fever" the next.
Some of her songs were laced with sly humor and many could make you misty.
She was also quite a looker (Scandinavian heritage)--- in the late 50's and early 60's her figure was quite voluptuous! For a musical treat and to learn more about this great artist check out "Fever - the Music of Peggy Lee" on DVD.

Peggy Lee could do it all- Songwriter, actor, recording artist as well as cabaret singer! She also perfected her stage persona and that was a treat to see.
Peggy could sing jazz, pop, mor, etc.. And no one could imitate her style which is timeless!

253 Anne Murray Anne Murray Morna Anne Murray known professionally as Anne Murray, is a Canadian singer in pop, country, and adult contemporary music whose albums have sold over 55 million copies worldwide.

She had a voice that you just wanted to listen to, whatever the quality of the song. I greatly regret that I only became aware of her when her career was almost over. It's one of music's greatest tragedies that her arrangements and her musical backup were so lousy. If it hadn't been for that, she would have been one of the greatest. Even a great voice like hers needs support. She had none; in fact, what musical "support" she had can more properly be described as a distraction, an irritant Her material was also poor. Unfortunately, when she sung the standards, she also suffered from the same fatal flaws. If she had only had a good arranger. Sigh.

259 Matt Monro Matt Monro Matt Monro, known as The Man with the Golden Voice, was an English singer who became one of the most popular entertainers on the international music scene during the 1960s and 1970s.

Hands down the greatest singer in the history of English traditional pop.

A truly beautiful voice from yesterday.

260 Alka Yagnik Alka Yagnik
